The exit in the semifinals of the US Open was left behind, in America, and the next thing for Daniil Medvedev is the ATP 500 from Hamburg.
The Russian is the top seed in Germany and his debut will be against Ugo Humbert, eighth-finalist in Rome. If you overcome that instance, the situation will be even better as your rival comes out of a duel between players emerged from the classification.
Second-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas does not arrive in good shape on brick dust and will start his way against a tough nut like Dan Evans.
With Juan Ignacio Londero and Pablo Cuevas playing qualifying, what is certain from South America is the participation once again of Diego Schwartzman. He will face Albert Ramos in the premiere and if he advances he would collide with the winner of a Next Gen duel between Lorenzo Sonego and Felix Auger-Aliassime. In addition, Cristian Garin will do it against Kei Nishikori.
The possible quarter-finals (in order of the draw):
Medvedev vs. Fognini
Bautista Agut vs. Rublev
Schwartzman vs. Monfils
Khachanov vs. Tsitsipas
